On the programme: Access 2030 and the sustainability of the patient movement

The first day of our programme will be an occasion to look at our collective accomplishments of the past year and to present our EPF Roadmap to Achieving Universal Health Coverage for All by 2030, one of our 2017 achievements. We will also look at the future and how we can ensure the visibility and the sustainability of our movement in the years to come.

Objective: Europeans Elections 2019!

On the second day of our meeting, we will focus on the upcoming European Parliament’s elections which will take place in the Spring 2019. We will exchange views and work together to design the patients’ community messages to ensure that health is a key topic in the European Election debate.


We will elect five board members. If your organisation is a full member of EPF and wishes to nominate a member to the board, please complete and return the attached nomination form by 10 March. You can read about the general responsibilities of Board members here.

Please note that applicant organisations to be endorsed at the Annual General Meeting that meet the criteria for full membership are also eligible to put forward a nomination.
